Day 4: What RPG have you played the most since August 2016?
Well, it’s really no contest. The clear and undisputed winner of that honour falls to Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition.
We’ve been playing Dungeons & Dragons 5e pretty much since its launch in 2014 and were playing 2nd Edition before that.
I like the streamlined nature of the game, the overall mechanics that avoid, for the most part, complicated mathematics. As a roleplaying experience, it has greatly improved the quality of our game sessions.
By tightening the mechanics, making them less math intensive, the has become much more story driven and less of a murderfest.
In the past year, Conn and I have played a bit of Conan and Occult Detective RPG, of course, and I’ve read quite a few rulebooks for non-Wizards games, but within our three ongoing campaigns, it’s been D&D5e.
And I’m more than okay with that.
